Virtual Workshops for Professionalism

With tips and advice from career counselors, human resources reps, new employees, and seasoned business professionals, this three-part series takes a commonsense approach to the details of job success. Each program provides essential information on the big issues (dress codes, asking for a raise) as well as on matters seldom covered (dealing with office politics, surprise visits from higher-ups). Engaging graphics make pertinent points easy to remember, and anecdotes from a focus group of young professionals give real-life context to expert recommendations. The importance of good interpersonal skills and having a positive attitude is promoted throughout.

A Cambridge Educational/MotionMasters Coproduction. 3-part series, 25 minutes each.
